      I was able to get the Postal Money Order in the mail today. I guess that's better than saying - "the check's in the mail" :D

      Thanks - Spoon

  2. Rye:

     hope you don't mind me pestering you and you don't have to respond if it's too big a pain but I know you are/were a long time 44-40 guy and I had some questions.


    First I see you've gone 38/357 any particular reason or just cost and such.

    I just picked up a pair of 44-40's and while I haven't shot them I think they balance better than any 45 or 38 for sure.

    I also see i will HAVE to load for them.

    Are 44-40's as big a pain to load for as I've been led to believe?

    Any insights would be greatly appreciated.

      Howdy Dutch, I shot .44-40 with nothing but black for 7-8years. 2 years ago I decided to go with smokeless because of the cost, cleaning and time spent loading BP. I experienced all kinds of problems with .44-40/smokeless. It is mainly the crimp. I would shoot rounds from my rifle no problem but then one of them the bullet would go back in the case!!! Why did all the rest work okay? I think it's the thin mouth on the .44-40 that doesn't always hold a crimp. I had many cracked cases also. I also had problems with rounds fitting in my Colts and Uberti revolvers. I had to resize many that didn't fit. Some did some didn't so I just resized all of them. What a pain in the neck!!! I went to .38's for cost, ease of loading and I aquired a really nice .357 Colt SAA so that got me off to the .38 world! I have a 73 Commanchero, a 66 Uberti, a couple Smoke Wagons, a Cattleman and the Colt all in .38 now. I can't believe how easy reloading is now! .38's are also really easy to shoot. My times are better. Good luck with your .44-40's, it's great round for black powder!!You just have to be very careful loading them.

      Thank you for your time and courtesy, much appreciated.

      Some guys will say to use a profile crimp die with the .44-40, I used a Lee factory crimp die. When I shot black I never had a problem with the crimp since I filled the case with powder almost to the top. The problem I had was when I went to smokeless. For the most part everything was fine but just that occasional round would slip in and ruin the day!! Driftwood Johnson and Larsen Pettifogger are both really knowledgable about loading for this round.



  3. check out happy's thread on his buying a 97 shotgun from this guy!!

      I shouldn't have said anything

      just don't want to see anyone else hurt by this gent.

      Thanks for the heads up. If he does contact me about the rifle I will tell him he needs to make it right with Happy Appy before we do any business, not that I would after reading the other posts. 

      I was having second thoughts about buying due to him not answering messages. Even though he had been on the wire. Just confirms my gut feeling.

      I believe that we do need a place to post about these kind of deals. 

      Thanks again. 

  4. sent an Im re the Colts..... will you be selling any long guns??

    long story short I lost the vision in one of my eyes last april, sold most of my collection in a panic. Surgery got me most of my vision back so I'm looking to pick up a few things. We'll chat tomorrow as I may look at that schofield, those Rugers sure are nice.

    Like you I tend to have fewer nicer things than a whole bunch of others.

    sleep well

      Thank you for the consideration.

  6. Thanks pard, I'm waiting for Allie Mo to ban me for not going with the public sentiment.

    Somebody does what's been suggested and thing could go very wrong, very quickly.

    Some of the yahoo's think they're Wyatt Earp and are going to clean up the town....HA!!


    Happy Trails

    been a while since I said that!!

      You and me both my friend!  I'm actually very surprised she is keeping it alive and agreeing with it.  Look, I'm not a lawyer, but I have been working in the legal field going on over 30 years.

      SASS is putting them selves in a very slippery slope with this.  By her (a SASS MOD) giving her approval to this and someone gets hurt.. OR if someone posts someones name just because they googled it and that not be anyone that has anything to do with this, can sue SASS.  I guarantee that could happen.

      I'ts amazing that people are saying they went to someones house and got the money back.  I cant say one way or the other... but it seems unlikely to me.  But its giving some other guy the stones to go bang on someones door and demand the money.  It probably wouldn't turn out well.


      I had thought about posting a link to the theme music of the movie Hang Em High... but that would be looked at as sarcasm....  but I think it would be funny.  Anyway, hope your having a good evening!


      Take care,

      Johnny Dollar  (Keith)

      Hello Gentlemen,


      I doubt you knew this was a public post not a private message.


      What is it about? If you see anything amiss on the Wire, I wish you would report it. Can you give me a link to the thread.



  7. is the 18" saddle rifle in 357 the one shown or is pic just a representation?


    I know it's short stroked but what all else is done to it?


    my thanks in advance

      It is tuned and short stroked, we can add a smooth cycle kit for a nominal fee. 

      Thank you for your question.
